If your son/daughter is going home with another parent, I need a note regarding this as well.
Practices will be held in the gym if there is inclement weather. If a race is cancelled your son/daughter will call you to let you know.

Sneakers and running clothes,
water bottle (with name on it), and

The introduction to X-country running is an awesome opportunity for the student athletes to enjoy the sport of running. If you need to reach me, I will always carry my cell phone. I look forward to working with the student-athletes.
